NEW YORK — Now in it’s 18th year, Atelier Designers in February will mount its 50th trade show.
“We have more collections, but we don’t have more space in the hotel,” said Atelier’s director Susan Summa, sitting in a suite on the 40th floor of the DoubleTree hotel in Times Square. “We have more European collections and accessories because they add texture and a great deal of color.” Multimedia jewelry, including pieces made from laminated paper, are popular. Bright pink and yellow as accent colors are big, Summa said, but “when the economy is struggling, we see neutrals and there are neutrals everywhere.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
